En Route Pangong - The Cold Desert of India


The roads from Ladakh to pangong in winter are a treat to watch. With temperatures ranging from -25 to -35, you could find snow and ice every where. Snowy roads made it feel as if it was a fictional setting, there were hardly any vehicles on the road in this season. Watch out the video to get a glimpse of how the travel will be from ladakh to pangong lake.

Ladakh is a region in India totally isolated from the modern world. Even an Indian traveller will probably find no similarities in the land and people between the ones he leaves behind and those he encounters in Ladakh. Ladakh lies at an altitude from 9000 ft to 25170 feet. At these heights, you are on the roof of the world! Ladakh means "land of high passes". Until the coming of the aircraft, the only access into this remote, high Trans-Himalayan kingdom was across several high pass crossings.
